Season 5 Content

  • Cannon Rowboats. The new Cannon Rowboat is exactly as the name suggests: a standard rowboat with a cannon strapped to the front. When stashed on your ship the Cannon Rowboat can provide additional firepower, but it can also fare pretty well on its own as a lightweight attack vessel.
  • Burying your loot. You can now take treasure chests and bury them in the sand anywhere you want, stashing it away and keeping it safe.
    • This creates a custom treasure map to help lead you back to your buried treasure
    • If you want, you can share your custom treasure maps with over Sea of Thieves players through the new Quest Boards. If another crew uncovers your buried treasure, you'll also get rewarded (including lots of Renown)!
  • Fireworks and flares. You can now employ the cannons on your ship for a new purpose: fireworks displays. These fireworks look amazing, and come in lots of varieties. However, you can also fire a variety of flares from your ships, either to provide additional light on a dark night, warn nearby players and crew of impending danger, and more.
  • Sitting and sleeping. A lovely quality-of-life update, players can now sit in Sea of Thieves wherever a chair is available (including the Captain's Chair!). You can also sleep in beds to regain health over time.
  • 100 tiers of fresh rewards. The Plunder Pass is getting refreshed with 100 tiers of brand-new rewards, which are still free for all players. There are also new premium awards available.
  • Other improvements. Some of the other new features and changes include:
    • Using the Speaking Tool backward to whisper to nearby players instead of yelling
    • Festive items and ship decorations
    • Plenty of new emotes and ways to express yourself in-game
    • A huge number of quality-of-life updates and tweaks to make the game easier to play
    • And much more

Key Features:

  • A unique co-op experience that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of a shared landscape and its threats, both from other players and the world itself.
  • Designed around players working together with shared goals and rewards, where you’ll go on epic voyages in search of legendary artefacts and buried treasure, but in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew. What flag are they flying, and what do they want?
  • Crew up with your friends and be the pirates you want, choosing your own roles and goals. Explore the world, take on quests, or seek out conflict. It’s your crew against the world, and how you deal with other crews is entirely up to you.
  • Invites players into a beautiful world with a distinctive art style, ripe for exploration and with mythical creatures lurking on islands and under the inviting surface of the sea…
  • Offers an experience that will evolve over time, landing in players’ hands early and growing thanks to community insights and feedback. New ways to play will be unveiled as the world expands and evolves.
